Linda actually listens. Linda is fantastic! For the first time in my life a stylist actually gave me practical tips that helped me keep my hair in great shape. Her suggestions were so simple and realistic. I'm ashamed to say that because I followed her tips and got way less split ends, it's now been almost a year since I've seen her! Linda is the person to go to for frizzy, curly hair.
Excellent cut, Danielle is awesome!!!.
I've been going to Judy Jetson for over a year now, and I love the way Danielle cuts my hair. She's a bundle of energy, and is a lot of fun to talk to while she works her magic.
Before I came to JJ, I was getting my hair cut at a place in Kendall Square. The cuts were "ok", but each time I told the stylist that I wanted something different and that she could feel free to do whatever she wanted, as long as the cut was ultra-low maintenance and worked with my wavy hair... and they'd go right into giving me the exact same cut I came in with: a layered cut that was nearly shoulder-length that only looked good when blow-dried straight (that is not ultra-low maintenance, and my hair never looked good after the first day!!!).
When I first went to Danielle, I told her the same thing. She thought about it for a bit, and then told me what she thought. I walked out with a "super-cute" (Danielle's words and I agree!) chin-length bob that looked vaguely flapperish, and couldn't have been happier with the results.
I highly recommend JJ (and Danielle). If you're turned off by no frills surroundings, though, it may not be for you.
not impressed!! and uncomfortable. This was the first and last time for me going to the Judy Jetson salon. It was an uncomfortable atmosphere - the stylists were only talking to each other. My stylist was not one for chatting - I don't think he asked me one question. I like when my stylists offer suggestions on what may look good for future cuts or what would work best for my hair, but there was none of that. My stylist seemed bored and distracted. I'm not sure what the other stylists are like, but the one I had (and I'm sorry - I didn't even catch his name) was a one star at best. I don't like my cut and feel I overpaid for the void of service. This salon was a no-go for me.
Hello from Maureen. "Hello from Maureen! I am happy to say that I will be moving to Salon Luna in Porter Square this week. To everyone who has supported me in the Boston/Cambridge area, a BIG thank you. Hours, directions etc., can be found at :the Salon Luna website.
Moureen knows color. I have been going to JJ for about 2 years now and wanted to let people know that if you want someone that is down to earth and understands color and skin tone then I recommend Moureen at JJ. She looked at a color that I was receiving at a salon on Newbury and ask if she could change it a bit.... A subtle change made all the difference and I have never received more compliments on my color and cut. I highly recommend her. And for parking, park in Porter square and enjoy a nice 3 block walk to the salon.

Linda Chehab is awesome. I went to Linda Chehab at Judy Jetson hair salon and was rewarded with the best cut of my life. I have curly hair but the type that culrs differently all over and it is frizzy all the time. Thanks to some of the reviews i read, I was able to decide who to see...Linda was wonderful. She listened to my concerns, got to know a little about me, Asked a lot of questions and was also very funny. When she was done with my cut, she asked if i had any concerns and i did and she was able to address them right away and told me I need to educate her about what i like and dont because curly hair is never the same twice. I am surprised to read that (tools for School) was unhappy.Seems like a whole different person than the Linda I had cut my hair. After my haircut,Linda assured me that she wanted the haircut to work for me outside the salon and was very admanant that i call if i were for any reason not a %100 happy. Ofcourse i did not need to call because the cut was great. I suggest you talk to her a lot and let her know what you want and dont want and not be hesitant to voice your concerns because she is very flexible and will address any issues you may have...AS for me, I found my hairdresser and I no longer have to worry about that. The salon itself can be a little intimidating and the stylists all tend to talk to each other and involve the clients witht he conversation which i think is great because it gives you the feeling of belonging...It is definitely not the place to go if you are looking to get your behind kissed but it is definitely the place to go for a good laugh and fun down to earth atmosphere and out of this world haircuts.And as Linda says, if u r not %100 happy right away, talk to her next time more about what u want and let her know what did not work for u.So with a guarantee like that,i say, if ur haircut was not terrible and just okay, go back and let her know you more.Trust me, she rocks
Too cool for school.
I have long curly hair and am happy to pay a lot and go out of the way to get a good cut. I went to Judy Jetson because a few curly-headed women I know all got great haircuts there, all from different stylists. I called and requested a stylist who is good with curly hair, and got an appointment with Linda Chehab. I asked her to give it more body in the back and a few short pieces in the front. I also said if she had suggestions I was open to them, as I was simply sick of my long hair and wanted something more flattering. I'm fairly certain she barely listened. The haircut is OK, but I already had an OK haircut. It comes with the same maintenance problems I was trying to get rid of. What really turned me off to this salon was the atmosphere and attitude within it. I had my short, peremptory consulation *after* I had already had my hair washed because Linda was busy--with curly hair you really need to consult beforehand because a stylist needs to see the shape and type of curl. Also, the water was cold when my hair was washed and the woman never asked about the temperature.
When Linda started cutting my hair, she would say not very funny things and then cackle extravagantly. She would yoo-hoo to people coming in as I was in mid-sentence. All the stylists were like this--it was that weird salon culture taken to the extreme. I tried to make polite conversation, which she obviously thought was lame, so then I tried to read, and she said "Aren't you going to entertain me?" I moved a piece of hair from my eyes, and she said "I know what you're thinking--you're thinking I'm not paying attention to the way your hair naturally parts." ??? No, I'm thinking I have hair in my eyes and want to get it out.
All in all, it was an unpleasant, uncomfortable experience. I get that it's "hip" and was not intimated by this, but everyone was just *so* ridiculous that I found it a huge turn off. The cut was not good enough to put up with that kind of stuff.
I love Judy Jetson!.
I go to Linda Kirk and her cuts are great. I have very short hair and have always found that if you don't get a good cut, it will grow in badly. Not a problem with Linda. I also get my 3 year old daughter's hair cut by Linda and she does a great job. Everyone in the salon is very friendly and the atmosphere is very funky.
If you are looking for a hip haircut done well, go to Judy Jetson's.
Linda C.'s talent is beyond exceptional. I have long hair with long layers/bangs that I love... I honestly can say that I LOVE my hair now... All because of Linda Chehab at Judy Jetson salon. She is the most talented stylist I have ever experienced. Going there for a cut is the best decision I have ever made. At first I was recommended to another stylist, and because she was unavailable, I was set up with Linda. I was pleasantly surprised by how accurately she "got" my hair and what would make it work... I had been trying to get other stylists to do the same style for years! and after only a few exchanges (well, she sits you down and has you tell all...), she got it right! She cut it so well that after 3 months it still looked great! I went in today afraid of losing that "grown-in" look and I came out even happier then I was the first time! The ease with which she gets it right is shocking.. She effortlessly cuts away and then there it is...the ever-desired perfect cut. Yes, I will admit that there are no frills at this salon.. They don't massage your scalp and serve you tea, but the stylists are talented, and isn't that what counts? If you need pampered, don't go here, but if you are looking for a new style and want to walk away from the salon happy and then be even happier when you get home and look in the mirror, try Linda C. (in the window) at Judy Jetson.. I gaurantee you will be happy... Thanks Linda!!!
